The Superior Court has imposed a $10,000 cash bail on a man who failed to appear in court and later tried to elude police officers when they tried to arrest him on a warrant.
Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph Camacho imposed the $10,000 cash bail on Juan Delos Reyes Tydingco during his bail hearing last week.
Tydingco faces charges of fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, speeding, and reckless driving.
The Department of Public Safety arrested Tydingco because he was wanted for failure to appear in court.
Tydingco was remanded to the custody of the Department of Corrections following the bail hearing and was ordered to return to court on Nov. 12 at 9am for a preliminary hearing. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 17 at 9am.
According to court documents, an officer made a traffic violator stop on a sports car being driven by Tydingco on Sept. 9, at 9:25am.
However, when the officer attempted to approach the vehicle by the driver’s side, the car sped off. While the officer pursued the car, Tydingco allegedly drove recklessly at high speed, made unsafe lane changes, overtook several vehicles, and nearly caused collisions. Other police vehicles joined the pursuit, but later lost sight of the car on As Terlaje Hill.
DPS central office later received a call from a San Vicente resident who said that Tydingco came into her property and wanted her to hide him but she refused. Tydingco then fled on foot to the jungle.
